An Xbox One Edition of 4J Studios and Mojang’s popular sandbox title, Minecraft, was announced during Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference last year. As mentioned, we’ve yet to learn of a launch date for the next-gen version.
Mojang’s Owen Hill confirmed in a PlayStation Blog posting earlier that the will apply to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 Editions of Minecraft.
“The plan is to enable users to transfer from PS3 to PS4,” he wrote. “We’re still working out how it’ll work with the Vita version.”
